HD Alert!

As I already wrote at BY THE GODS!, Kino Lorber has announced that they'll have a Blu-ray disc later this year of SON OF SAMSON (1960) starring Mark Forest (above) and Chelo Alonso (below). This is great news. Not only will they be releasing SAMSON AND THE 7 MIRACLES OF THE WORLD (1961) but the very first Maciste movie of the 1960s. Hopefully, more titles will follow.

The screenshots here are from a print in HD and it's beautiful. There are two versions available, one with the English dub and the other being the original uncut Italian version (with English subs). I got these two copies on the internet and they are most likely taken fro the copy available at AMAZON Prime UK, which is HD. If the Kino Lorber disc uses the same print as this one, it will be great. The image is near perfect. Even if I have these copies, I will buy the US Blu-ray release.
